Feedback from the expert peers

The Peers recognised that this opportunity had arisen at short notice and commended all applicants on the quality of their applications given the short timeframes.

The peers provided the following feedback for current and future applicants:

  • The stronger applications included details about the applicant’s practice, explored relevant residency experiences and provided a well-articulated framework or methodology for approaching this residency.
  • The Peers noted the importance of good Letters of Support which demonstrate an understanding of the project and outline the benefits clearly. Peers advised against using generic support letters or letters supplied for an application to another funding body, where possible.
